Summary: I purchased the XX's about a week ago, so I've had time to fiddle with them for a while. Let's just jump right in with the sound. Unequalized, these sound like you're listening to a set of desktop speakers through a piece of wood. Not great. It's very muffled.
Pros: Boomy bass, large, stylish DJ-esque look
Cons: MUST be equalized to sound even halfway decent, cheap feeling, PLASTIC EVERYTHING
